Description

35mm color slide of a glass cooler (Vincennes Porcelain Manufactory). It has two small handles. A large purple flower and a butterfly are painted atop the white ground color. The seau à verre (glass cooler) was a smaller version of the traditional wine bottle cooler produced at Vincennes. It was meant “for holding an individual wine glass, bowl down” (Huntington 2019, no. 27.52). The number 5 is handwritten on the slide.
